I’ve been studying the scripture to prep for a new class I’ll be sharing with business owners and those in management positions. Many have asked me to share more about what the word says in regards to operating a business and I really want to share some light on that.
As I dig deep one thing (out of many) is very clear to me. No person or organization can prosper and have God’s blessing if they don’t financially compensate adequately their employees and or contractors. God Himself says in his word that to cheat workers of their wages is not only theft but also murder. (see James 5:4-6)
This leads me to say this. If one is not able to pay what one person or service is worth either learn to do it yourself or find someone who’s already established rates are within what you can pay. By no means manipulate, or try to convince them to give you a discount. You’re robbing that person when you do that. They’re providing a service to bless you or your organization, they’re earning that pay.
